Job satisfaction scales

Short Brayfield & Rothe (1951)

By Judge, Locke, Durham, & Kluger (1998, JAP, p.23):

We measured overall job satisfac- tion with five items taken from the Brayfield-Rothe (1951) mea- sure of job satisfaction. These five items were :

  1. I feel fairly well satisfied with my present job
  2. Most days I am enthusiastic about my work
  3. Each day of work seems like it will never end (R)
  4. I find real enjoyment in my work
  5. I consider my job rather unpleasant (R)

In order to ensure that this five-item measure was reliable, we gave it to an independent sample of 222 university employees. The reliability of the five-item scale in this sample was .88.

the response scale ranged from 0 (strongly disagree) to 10 (strongly agree) […] we averaged scores for the five items to produce a single score for overall job satisfaction.

Some jobs are more interesting and satisfying than others. We want to know how people feel about different jobs. This blank contains eighteen statements about jobs. You are to cross out the phrase below each statement which best describes how you feel about your present job. There are no right or wrong answers. We should like your honest opinion on each one of the statements.
